Roanoke Chain Grocery/Supermarket Locations, 1920-2005

This is a list of all chain grocery locations my research has uncovered in Roanoke between 1920 and 2005, compiled from city directories, telephone books, and other sources. There may be some omissions due to incomplete or missing data, etc. and I welcome suggestions and corrections. Please read about my methodology for more information about what I do and do not include.

  • There has been a significant amount of street renaming and renumbering in Roanoke over the past century. In many cases I was able to deduce the precise current address. In other cases, I had to estimate (as noted).
  • A&P locations from 1930 and 1935 are missing and will be added soon.
